Waterstones Says

The iconic Strictly Come Dancing star's moving memoir charts his incredible rise to success and how it has enabled him to actively fight against homophobia and racism.

In 2019, Johannes Radebe became the first male dancer to perform in heels in Strictly Come Dancing history. Wearing black patent leather boots, Johannes danced with a red 'Pose' fan to a rendition of Blondie's Rapture.

Two years on, Johannes was part of only the second same-sex pair on the show, dancing with Great British Bake-Off winner, John Whaite and though they were runners up and the response from the UK public was overwhelmingly positive, Johannes still faced abuse that highlighted the continuing fight against homophobia and racism.

For Johannes this instantly iconic dance was about more than just a tribute to voguing: it was Johanne's coming out. After that performance, Johannes flew home to South Africa to see his mum and had a conversation about his sexuality - the first they ever had.

Johannes incredible rise to stardom through his dancing has led him to places he never thought possible, personally and professionally and now he is sharing his story up to now with world. Jojo Finally Home will shine light on the never-before-told realities and obstacles of his journey and be a celebration of his triumphs and his truths, full of hope, love and joy for readers everywhere.
